You know those people that have no tolerance for moms gushing about their kids and the life and times of mommy hood? Those people that criticize moms who’s whole life seem to revolve around their kids and label such women as having “no life” but their kids.
NO LIFE? That is the most absurd thing I have ever heard. What else could be more joyful, more fulfilling, more expanding? A job on Wall Street? I think not…Now I run my own business, and am lucky enough to have work that I adore as Happiness Coach for The Joyful Mother, but there is nothing that gives me more joy than being a mom. The gifts you receive as a mother are truly unless when you are awake enough to receive them, to enjoy them.
What if society made room for celebrating motherhood? A society where women who choose to step out of the work force or valiantly balanced the two worlds of career and family, were revered as heroes in our times? The ones that took motherhood seriously instead of making it “fit in” to a 60 hour work week or an endless career trajectory? What would the lives of our children be like, if their mothers were of the most respected in society, doing the MOST respected work in society? Would parenting be a conscious act and children seen, heard and respected instead of tolerated? I think so. The world would be simple, a better place.
I wish for this blog post to be such a celebration. A beginning of a new direction for mothers. Lets not wait for society to celebrate, revere or respect us, let’s do it ourselves, right now! I hope that this post is seen, read and commented on by thousands, maybe millions of women.
So forget about the haters, the ones that don’t get the sacredness of motherhood, I want to know….
What Do You Love Most About Being A Mom?
To get the ball rolling, here are mine (these two guys to the right are mine too…)
- I love the way my children love me – a love that fills me from the tippy top of my head to the bottoms of my feet.
- I love how every challenging day with my kids is actually an opportunity for me to expand, to improve as a mom and as a person.
- I love that my husband and I were an active part of a MIRACLE (2 of them!)
- I love that as I show up as the BEST version of me, I am showing my children how to be the BEST versions of themselves.
